Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/30/20137:48 AM
Good morning everyone :)
Sure hope you had a great weekend. Mine was actually quite busy, including a very early Saturday morning trip to Boise and Meridian.
I'm hoping to take some time today to get around to visiting you all, I always feel awful when the Happy Homemaker Monday slips by and I don't get around to all the participants, so I'm going to try very hard to get that done.
Alright, on to today's HHM!!!
64 degrees this morning. We got more rain overnight and I can honestly tell you that I've seen more rain here in the past two months than in the 7 years I was in Arizona. Goodness!!!
Right now I am:
Enjoying a very hot cup of coffee with Vanilla Creamer and lounging in my Cath Kidston pj's with pink soft socks on.
That I could just take the whole day off and do nothing but lounge in my pj's with hot cups of coffee and a good book.
On my reading pile:::
I wasn't really enjoying The Welcome Committee of the Butternut Creek, so I switched to A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs and this one I'm really enjoying :)
On my tv:::
Downton Abbey Season 4 - It premiered last week in the UK and you know me, I don't wait until January for it to come to the States, I have to watch live. If you wish, you can also watch it online, here is episode 1 and here is episode 2. :)
On the menu for this week:::
I'm still compiling the new menu, so only have meals assigned for today and tomorrow. I have to get to the commissary on Tuesday for grocery shopping too.
Monday - Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, Twice Baked Potato Casserole
Tuesday - Chicken a la King with Noodles
On my to do list:::
Laundry - wash, dry, iron, put away
Tae Kwon Do
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Last night I finished the knitted cuff I was working on, today I'll be starting the second one and then I'll have my pair complete. Jasmine has been wearing hers everywhere and she's loving it. I ended up giving her the grey pair because that's the color she wanted and I am out of grey. Also have the crochet stash buster blanket I'm busy with.
Looking around the house:::
Just did the dishes, so the sink is empty. Once they are dry I'll have to get them all packed away.
Did a big house cleaning on Friday so don't have much in the way of cleaning to do, aside from the daily pick up and tidy here and there.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
Many people, many family members.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
God brings us to the end of ourselves to show us how much, how desperately, we need him. We need the power of his Spirit to help us walk in obedience, no matter the cost. We need his help to forgive as we’ve been forgiven, to love as we’ve been loved, to be patient with others as he’s been patient with us. Only through the Spirit can we break the power of sin in our lives—whether it’s addiction or bitterness or gossip. So remember, it’s not by your might or power, but by God’s. Admit your dependence on him. - Zechariah 4:6
